Dogs are not only accepted at South Tynedale Railway, we consider them one of the family!
We are proud recipients of the Dog Friendly Business awards and we will give your four-legged friend a warm welcome, a dog treat and a poo bag for those little emergencies! Our shop sells a locally made Wellybix biscuits which come in a delicious range of flavours.
Dogs are welcome in all of our areas including our cafes, Discovery Centre and Engineering Workshop Viewing Gallery. Dog Rover tickets are £2 and dogs must be accompanied by a fare paying human! Water bowls are available at Alston and Slaggyford stations but we’ll happily fill a travelling water bottle up for you too – just ask!
The permissible footpath of the South Tyne Trail runs right along next to the track (fenced off) and dogs can enjoy wonderful walks with their families. Please help them by scooping their poop as they can’t do it themselves! The trail starts right next to the free car park at Alston which is open until 5.00pm Monday to Sunday in season and can be accessed easily from our Slaggyford station too so it’s easy to park, ride and walk!
Don’t forget to post pictures of your doggy day out on our facebook page; we’d love to see them!
